Vestas has received a 53 MW order from Thuan Binh Wind Power (TBW), a local developer for two wind projects in Vietnam.
Vestas said it will supply, transport, install and commission a total of 13 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines delivered in different power ratings to optimise the projects’ energy output. The wind power projects are planned to achieve commissioning in the third quarter of 2021.
The two projects – Phu Lac Phase 2 wind farm and Loi Hai 2 wind farm – are located in the Binh Thuan and Ninh Thuan provinces along the South-Central Coast of Vietnam. This is the second time Vestas will be working with TBW who owns the 24 MW Phu Lac Phase 1 wind farm commissioned in 2015 with 12 V100-2.0 MW wind turbines.
“As the deadline for Vietnam’s Feed-In-Tariff quickly approaches, our partnership with TBW still enables us to deliver these projects within the time limit, maximising the benefits to our customer and to the Vietnam wind industry,” Clive Turton, president of Vestas Asia Pacific, said.
Five years ago, Vestas was the turbine supplier of an EPC contract that TBW signed for the 24 MW Phu Lac 1 wind farm. The wind farm has been a showcase piece for us especially after winning Asian Power Award 2017 – Wind Power Project of the Year.
“TBW is working directly with Vestas this time for our next two wind projects with a total capacity of 53 MW,” Bui Van Thinh, CEO of TBW, said.
The order also includes a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement for both projects, designed to maximise energy production for the sites. With a yield-based availability guarantee, Vestas will provide the customer with long-term business case certainty.
